If you are looking for good, cheap insurance try State Farm,  I am paying
almost half what most other quotes were.  I know theres been some discussion
on this list in the past about State Farm not using new or o.e.m. parts for
claims BUT a) this would only affect you if you had a claim and b) that
practice happens to be illegal (at least in Texas) so I wouldn't worry about
too much.

For those of you not in Texas, check with your state Dep't. of Insurance,
you might be surprised to find that the practice of substituting rebuilt,
etc., parts is only *legal* if you don't challenge it!
